Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Megan Tingley Books; Little, Brown and Co., 2005.




When Bella moves from sunny Phoenix to gloomy Forks, she's sure she's in for the most rotten years of her life — new school, no friends, no sun…. Surprisingly, however, things aren't nearly as bad as she anticipated — school's a breeze and she begins to make lots of new friends; actually, everything's a little too easy — until she meets the Cullens, the exquisitely beautiful and graceful family that keeps their distance from everyone else. Curious and attracted to them, she seeks them out, Edward especially, and discovers desire, blood, and terror stronger than anything she has ever experienced.

You know those books that capture you from the beginning and you just don't want to put them down? This was one of those for me. The author's hope to create a strong fantasy book with deeply sympathetic characters and believable perspectives succeeds. Twilight is a great book; I didn't want to put it down!
